CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- The holiday season rings in on Saturday, Dec. 3 in Chappaqua with a variety of activities, hosted by the New Castle Historical Society.

Each year, the society decorates for the season using items that the historic Greeley family would have used when it was their country home from 1864-1873. All events are free and open to the public.

  • 3:30-4:30 p.m. New Castle Community Sing presented by the Chappaqua Orchestra at Robert E. Bell Middle School .
  • 4-6:30 p.m. Old Fashioned Crafts Workshop at the Greeley House . Children of all ages are invited to create old fashioned crafts, including button wreaths, paper snowflakes, quilled paper stars, cork critters, and natural seasonal decorations.
  • 5 p.m. Tree lighting and visit from Santa at the Greeley House.

The Greeley House was built about 1820 and served as the home of newspaper editor and later presidential candidate Horace Greeley from 1864 to his death in 1872.

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979, along with several other properties nearby related to Greeley and his family.
